HARRY/DRACO ART AND FIC AWARDS UPATE

Good afternoon fellow inspirees (is that a real word?).

First of all, thanks to those of you who filled out the HARRY/DRACO ART AND FIC AWARDS monster poll of doom and/or left comments with suggestions or links to other awards sites. ♥

There has been much to think about and basically your thoughts come down to this:

*having more catagories for art and fic

*having less catagories for art and fic

*having different catagories for art and fic

*a variety of ideas for the nominating procedure

*public voting, which is the easiest to set up and abuse

*inviting a panel of independent jurors, with specific judging criteria for them to follow, to read and vote upon the fics in the quarter finals, semi finals and finals (thanks vaysh)

PHEW!

After taking into account the time needed to deal with all of the above, set up and run the award comm alongside running a quality annual themed fic exchange, we realised we would have precious little time to pursue our own writing commitments.

So, in a nutshell, and for our own sanity, hd_inspired will continue to be an annual themed fest event. Anyone else want to take the art/fic award idea on board? Feel free to use the information from the monster poll of doom.
